What are the necessary directories I need for a full backup of my FreePBX?
i was doing a backup of /var/ and /usr/ but as expected, it’s taking too much space on the HDD.

Is the backup offered on the “backup assistant” all i need(as if i would make a new clean install)?

That depends on what you mean by “full backup.” To be able to restore your PBX to a fresh install of same version, just select Full Backup, CDRs, System Audio and Voicemail. I don’t think that grabs AGI scripts, so I also add /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin because we have custom agi scripts.

However, my definition of “full backup” means image the server.
